Most of us have fond memories of the computer and video games we grew up with. Today there is such a massive amount to choose from, and the quality is extraordinary, but there is still something very nostalgic and comforting with playing a good ol' Super Mario from time to time.

Most popular games of the 1990's

We all had our different favourites, but the most pouplar games in the 1990's were:

  • Super Mario - all versions
  • Donkey Kong
  • Sonic the Hedgehog
  • Doom
  • Mortal Combat
  • Street Fighter
  • Pokemon (old version)
  • Tetris
  • Final Fantasy
  • Tomb Raider

The list has some potential to continue, but those listed are probably the most popular video games of the end of the last century.

The revival

There is a revival happening for all these old games today. Old Nintendo, Sega and Sony consoles are being traded at quite impressive amounts on marketplaces like eBay and Amazon. Each game also costs a reasonable amount. Then - of course - there is the new productions of the old games and they are very easily accessible. You can download new versions of Super Mario and Sonic the Hedgehog, and all those other retro games, as apps and play on your tablet or smartphone. Eazy peazy and very cheap.

The future

Soon enough the games we get mezmerized by today will have their place on the retro shelves and awaken nostalgic memories of the young generation of today. It is how it goes. It is difficult to try to imagine what new games will enter the market in the coming generations, putting the ones we are now so in awe by in the "has been" basket, but that is what the game developers are for.
